After being closed for the past two years because of damage caused by Hurricane Laura and the pandemic, the new resort casino boasts celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay’s first Louisiana restaurant on the grounds of its 60,000-square-foot property – which will open in 2023.
Meanwhile, the casino will feature almost 1,000 slot machines and table games, Caesars’ new sportsbook and over 250 hotel rooms – with reservations now open to customers.
Anthony Carano, President and COO of Caesars Entertainment, said of the re-opening property: "When we closed the Isle of Capri in 2020, we were not expecting the property to be shut down for this length of time.
“But we couldn't be prouder of our team and all of the hard work they've put into this beautiful property. We look forward to welcoming our partners and the community to celebrate with us as we commemorate this milestone and introduce them to Horseshoe Lake Charles."
Meanwhile, Jeff Favre, SVP and General Manager of Horseshoe Lake Charles, added: "The support from the Lake Charles community has been tremendous, and we can't wait to welcome our guests back to experience our all-new resort.
"After being closed for more than two years, to reopen as a Horseshoe casino is the cherry on top of a pretty spectacular celebration."
The official ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at noon on 12 December and the day will end with a firework display, along with several other special events throughout the festive season.
